This hotel was great! It recently changed its name to the Pillo Hotel which made it a little confusing to find but once we did find it it was great. Free parking, nice pool, steam room and sauna. We enjoyed our stay fully and hope to return again! Our bartender, Greg, at the red bar was very helpful, friendly, and knowledgable. He had great suggestions for places to visit. It was a great experience!

... joining UK in 1882 and independence in 1921, with stories of the Vikings, Arthur Cromwell and Henry VIII. We saw the various types of housing in the city area, as in most cities from one extreme to another. Georgian, Edwardian, Victorian... You name it we saw it... There is a preservation order on Georgian buildings, which are 4 levels, side by side, with a shoe scraper at entry and a feature is they like to paint the entry doors ...
... they call those "lifts." What they aren't is hauling suitcases up 6 floors, which we did at the end of our trip. A six floor walk up is not unusual, be warned. Second: the beds. OMG these beds are so comfortable I could die. Third: reasonably easy to drive to, close to the airport, straightforward and free parking. When I arrive in Europe I've had no sleep and I'm ...

The book of Kells is an old manuscript of the gospels, written by Irish monks. One thousand years ago, Ireland had a total population of half a million people, who lived a semi-nomadic lifestyle, migrating north and ...
OMG!!! What a heart stopper that was. 51,000 people make a lot of noise and there was only a handful of Kiwis so our chants of "Black, Black, Black" went unheard. It was the most amazing atmosphere as the Irish could sense victory. Sadly it wasn't to happen for them but for the Kiwi fans, great relief! The calls of "Ireland, Ireland" from the stands and chant of "heave, heave" during scrums was deafening. The Irish were bitterly disappointed ...
... from Moneygall and Obama's eighth cousin still lived in the village. He wrote to the White House and invited Obama to come on over and Obama agreed to come! So the entire village got all gussied up - new paint, new pavement, fresh window boxes, etc, and Obama, Michelle,and the whole presidential entourage showed up in May 2011. They landed there by helicopter and the whole town was invited to a celebration at the local pub. They were all really impressed ...
